There’s some wonderful news for Counting On’s Joy-Anna Duggar and husband

Last week, fans questions whether Joy-Anna Duggar had gone into labor. The Counting On star had gone quiet on social media, leading to suggestions that she was in hospital. Well, fans weren’t far off the date of birth.

Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth and her husband Austin shared the awesome news on social media. Their daughter was born on Aug. 21. It’s an exciting time for the whole family, especially considering the miscarriage Joy-Anna suffered a year ago.

Joy-Anna and Austin talked about their loss during Counting On Season 11. They shared how they got a headstone and planted a tree where their daughter is buried. It’s a chance to see some life grow where her life can’t.

Another member of the Duggar family

The new member of the Duggar family is certainly going to be loved. Jim Bob and Michelle often talk about how much they love their grandchildren. They’re always excited about another baby joining the family, and have been heartbroken by the losses their daughters and daughters-in-law have suffered.

E! News was the first to reveal the exciting news. Joy-Anna and Austin haven’t announced the name of their daughter just yet. In the initial Instagram post, Joy shared that more news will come soon. The Forsyths have started doing more on their social media to create their own brand away from Counting On, so we’ll probably get a lot of updates that way now.

All we know is that both baby and mom are doing well. There were no complications with the birth, which was at the hospital as Joy-Anna had planned. Due to the problems with her first birth, she decided it was best to be at the hospital for this one.

What we don’t know is whether the birth will be featured in an upcoming season of Counting On. There are rumors that Joy and Austin have stepped away from the show. While they’ve been included a little in the recent season, they’re not in promotional material, suggesting that they are going to be in the background but not be featured in later seasons.
